I am the first wife, at the time me and my husband lived in two different areas due to me migrating to look for an income. My husband does not work and has no income. At the time I did not know that he had a relationship with the second wife although I did catch them and I told her he was married. I was a revert Muslim and she at the time has not reverted to Islam. My husband as a result of his secret affair did not have regular contact with me and I got impatient with him and asked him to talaq me which he gladly did only to marry the second wife two days later and she reverted to Islam. Then he took me back and I return to where my husband lived in my house. I agreed for the second wife also to move in with us. Both of us started madrassa and I grew in my Imaan and in Islam. I was financially distraught and the second wife was swimming in money. Only to find out 18 months later that she was stealing money from her employer. She was also having relationships with two other men while she was married to my husband. My husband talaq her as a result. My husband is a financial burden on me and as a result I suffer financially. As a result my husband want to take back the second wife to use her for her stolen money and to complete his mission to make of her a good muslim on the expense of our marriage and me suffering. I can't have any more children as I am much older than my husband, but the second wife also can't have children and never had and is a little younger than me but also older than my husband. The difference is that she can pay for a tube baby with her stolen money.
I am very angry. I do not believe that the second wife is good for me. I am a lawyer and I cannot get involve with criminals. I am also legally married to my husband and it will affect me and my profession should he enjoy her stolen money, knowing that she steals. My husband's excuse to make the second wife a good muslim is no excuse for me to take her back as she will then run out of money and he will look for the next victim to take money. Astagfirrulah.
